    About this Artwork

    NATHANIEL WINGATE PEASLEE, (1871-1940?). One-time professor of political economics, and later psychology, at Misikatonic University. Peaslee was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts and became a professor of political economics at Miskatonic in 1895. He married Alice Keezar in the following year, and they had three children. In 1908, Professor Peaslee underwent a mysterious seizure followed by a bout of amnesia and a severe change in personality. For the next five years, the professor embarked upon a study of history, anthropology, and mythology, undertaking voyages to all parts of the world to consult esoteric information in an apparent attempt to regain his memory. During this period, his wife divorced him, and all of his children, save for his son Wingate, refused to have anything to do with him. Many psychologists studied him, but confessed that his condition baffled them. This state of affairs concluded in 1913, when Peaslee inexplicably returned to health. At this time Wingate was returned to his custody. Peaslee seemed completely normal at first, though he found he had an inexplicable knowledge of both Aklo and Classical Greek. Soon after his return, however, he was plagued by nightmares of alien creatures and tremendous stone cities. These visions forced him to abandon the professorship that the University had returned to him, and he spent the next few years attempting to discover the roots of his affliction. While searching through many other cases like his own, Peaslee found many striking parallels between his own condition and those of others in the past. These findings were published in several academic journals, and in 1922, the University awarded him a professorship in Miskatonic's psychology department in recognition of his achievements. Along with his son Wingate, and Professors Dyer, Freeborn, and Tyler, Nathaniel Peaslee traveled to Australia in 1935 to aid in excavations of a supposed ruined city in the desert. A month and a half later, he left the diggings, following an attempt to cease excavations in a certain area. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies.
